Although we are still investigating the details of this incident, we believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login, and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers may have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained. While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained.

So it's 2011 and none of that data was encrypted?

Maybe it was encrypted like the old PS3 Firmware
It's a pretty bad breach of security and loss of personal information. Going to be some fallout from this.

Its gone from bad to worse. I don't own a ps3, but starting to feel bad for you guys that do. i can poke fun at downtime, but the last thing i would wish on anyone is the hell of going through identity theft.

It shouldn't. Information like that should be stored in a local cache. But I guess you may never know with Sony.
Is our Netflix account information in jeopardy? Or is that a separate API?
